Knowledge cities through ‘open design studio’ educational projects: the case study of Jeddah City This paper documents the approach, methodology and outcomes of the knowledge cities (KCs) ‘open design studio’ (ODS) model, which allowed for the interaction of the three planning and design disciplines in the Faculty of Environmental Design at King Abdul-Aziz University. The ‘ODS’ methodology relied on the ability of each discipline to create its own approach to the study; working under one roof, allowing for ongoing exchange of knowledge and findings, and calling for periodical formal joint presentations to align the work of all tracks.

Abstract

This paper documents the approach, methodology and outcomes of the knowledge cities (KCs) ‘open design studio’ (ODS) model, which allowed for the interaction of the three planning and design disciplines in the Faculty of Environmental Design at King Abdul-Aziz University. The ‘ODS’ methodology relied on the ability of each discipline to create its own approach to the study; working under one roof, allowing for ongoing exchange of knowledge and findings, and calling for periodical formal joint presentations to align the work of all tracks. First, the rational motives behind the adoption of the subject area, the selection of the case study, the utilisation of educational projects as a tool, and the promotion of multi-disciplinary design studio as a work environment were introduced. Next, the formation of the ODS, the development model, activities, and outcomes were presented. Lastly, a discussion highlighting the achievements, challenges and directions for future developments took place.
